Today’s project was repairing a caned chair.
I can’t even remember where I picked this chair up, probably at a yard sale. Don’t ever pick up old chairs at yard sales unless you are prepared to fix it yourself. The cost of someone else doing this would be, yikes!
This chair had good structural integrity so I thought it was worth the time.
It is a sturdy wooden chair. Worth a little elbow grease. Especially if you actually know how to do a cane insert, which I do.
It’s imperative that you get the groove totally gauged out. All the residue has to go.
Ever since I started to cane chairs over twenty years ago, this book has been my bible.
HAVE A SEAT!
